Can Piwik detect proxy visitor's real IP instead of proxy IP?


#1

Hi.

If a visitor is using a proxy or vpn or any IP changer (except for Tor, which is impossibe to track, I know)
Can Piwik detect visitor’s real IP?
If not, do you know any other way to detect the real IPs?

Thanks in advance.

hi there,

Piwik can detect real IP only if the proxy forwards the real IP. See our FAQ: How do I configure Piwik when the server is installed behind a proxy? - Analytics Platform - Matomo
